An overview of prevalent developmental motor disorders. Assessment and teaching of children with these disorders at the Movement Development Clinic.
This paper provides students with the opportunity to teach children with unique learning needs and to study developmental disabilities. Before a student starts teaching a child on a one-on-one basis, or with another student at the Movement Development Clinic, all students go through a three-week pre-clinic training programme. By writing lesson plans, self-evaluations and reports, students will acquire some of the essential professional skills required for teachers, coaches, trainers and researchers. Studies on developmental disabilities will equip students with a developmental perspective that will allow them to deliver age-appropriate service to children and adolescents.
